Masters degrees in Youth Work equip postgraduates with the skills to develop and deliver support services to vulnerable and under-privileged young people in society.
Related subjects include Community Youth Work and Childhood & Youth Studies. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Social Science or Nursing.
Many young people struggle to integrate in society, especially if they come from a background of poverty or hardship. Courses in this field train you in effective counselling techniques for the support, mentoring and guidance of young people, encouraging you to investigate and understand current practice and policy.
The role of a youth worker often places them alongside other care professionals, as well as health workers, teachers and employers.
Depending on your interests, you may want to specialise in supporting young people with disabilities or mental disorders at school. Or, you might help disadvantaged teenagers get their first working role. Youth workers are also involved in combating issues such as homelessness, domestic abuse and sexually-transmitted disease.
